Hazard, Schmeichel & more: Twitter reacts as Chelsea & Man United win
Eden Hazard and Peter Schmeichel both tweet their thoughts after Chelsea and Manchester United win on Saturday
Eden Hazard helped fire Chelsea to the top of the Premier League table on Saturday as the Blues sealed a 2-0 victory over Hull City at the KC Stadium.
Elsewhere, Manchester United, Southampton and West Ham United were all winners to help end their respective poor run of results, whilst Everton and Fulham notched up comfortable victories of their own.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order as Hazard and Adnan Januzaj earned the plaudits on a busy day of Premier League action.
Ex-England international Peter Reid (@reid6peter) is impressed by Chelsea’s Belgian star: “Hazard top class lad!”
Tottenham legend Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) is impressed by a new-look Fernando Torres: “What a difference a year makes. Not a single Chelsea striker scored in an away PL game last year. In 2014 Torres has scored in all of them.”
Former West Ham striker John Hartson (@JohnHartson10) tips Chelsea to win the Premier League crown: “Chelsea for the title I believe this season winning ugly and been over the course many times before.. #justanopinion”
Hull captain Curtis Davies (@TheCurtisDavies) felt the Blues weren’t as watertight as they were on the opening day of the season: “Frustrating day today! Different Chelsea to opening day allowed us to compete most of the game. Individual quality was the difference #HCAFC”
Ex-Liverpool forward Michael Owen (@themichaelowen) picks out Hazard as his man-of-the-match: “Typical efficient performance from Chelsea today. Hazard was top class. Hull were poor considering how well they’ve played this season.”

Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) gives us his thoughts on United’s second-half transformation: “Second half difference nothing to do with possession. Man united pressing Swansea higher up the pitch and now they are dictating.”
Finally United legend Peter Schmeichel (@Pschmeichel1) picks out Nemanja Vidic – and not Adnan Januzaj – as his star from the 2-0 win: “Well done the @ManUtd boys, Januzaj will prob grab the headlines, but Vidic for me today was awesome. #leadership”
